Ah yes… Summer is approaching and I could not be happier. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m planning to relax. I’ve got some goals in mind, but I’ve had to make a serious note to myself that I WILL relax. Relaxing includes reading some good fiction and non-fiction books, blogging, vlogging, building some personal relationships, and enjoying the beauty of nature. Perhaps there will be some re-down sizing, budgeting, and planning for the future, but not to an extent that I can not enjoy my summer. Relaxing during the summer should also include minimizing expenses. I’ve really got to prepare for this upcoming year and my possible fall trip to Japan. I’ve got just less than 30 days left of this semester and I’ve got to tough it out!
